Texas has always been enemies to the rest of the Big 12 due to the fact that they carry themselves as the national brand they are. However, there is a new reason the rest of the conference dislikes them.
After announcing that they were departing for the SEC, it has been made abundantly clear by the remaining teams and even Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark that they won’t be missed. Over the past few days, the commissioner publicly rooted against Texas, and now the latest slam by a conference foe came via Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen.
The former West Virginia head coach was asked recently about both Texas and Oklahoma leaving for the SEC, but it clearly seemed to be directed at the Longhorns. His answer was short and simple.
“Screw them. They can go wherever they want,” Holgorsen said on his radio show, via the Houston Chronicle. “They don’t want us and we don’t want them.”
The Longhorns will be traveling to Houston to take on the Cougars for their Week 7 matchup. It is safe to say that they will have some bulletin board material to help motivate them.
